Ahhh ... sweet, unharried productivity!!
Although if it wasn't for mine, I'd be getting lost driving all the time - that's why I call her my nagavator (weird, she doesn't appreciate that too much)

I see you have made an obelisk.... I have made several but mine are all about a 7 deg angle your's seems to be at a much wider angle, do you happen to remember what it is?

What is the red roofing on the birdhouse?

Sure enjoy seeing your work, keep it up!

hi ED and thank you very much.

The obelisk is built at a 22.5 degrees angle. i think
The red roofing is just regular 32" steel that they use on barns. i have found a place that sells it fairly cheap and it comes in a lot of bright colours.
I plan on building more with some new colours soon. Thanks again john

Hi everyone , here is a cottage i did a while back. i had help from my kids and nephews. it is located in muskoka on a 5 acre Island at the tip of 12 mile bay. it is just over 5,000 sq ft. the entire cottage is built on solid bedrock.

John, that's almost as big as some of your birdhouses! Is there anything that you don't do?
That's a beautiful place and the setting is perfect - and I assume good fishing as well.
Thanks for the pics (uh, but next time, put your shirt on !)

Thanks Gil
This cottage is located in a very beautiful area and the fishing is great. we caught a lot of 16-20 lbs salmon. much fresher then the fish in the stores. the sunsets were also nice there.

Ya know John, I have another question - It's on an island, right? How'd you get the wood over there? Gotta be a project and a half! I watched a guy build a cabin on a small island in UP Michigan, and it wore me out just watching him haul materials over a boat load at a time. Hats off!! (Notice, I'm a schmuck - I just watched!!)
